Installation on Windows 8 - MongoShell gives error

Running windows 8.1. (64Bit Version)
installed mongo shell off Altas
all goes well.
once i try run mongo.exe i get an error message:

mongo.exe - Entry point not found.

the procedure entry point bCryptHash could not be located in the dynamic link library.


Installed ZIP-version 4.4.4. There’s an instruction here that shows a successful installation and running.

When I try it myself:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.2.9200]

>cd %MONGODB_HOME%\bin

>mongo.exe --version

The following dialog pops up:

mongod.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point BCryptHash could not be located 
in the dynamic link library <...>\mongodb-4.4.4\bin\mongod.exe. 

Haven’t found the solution yet.


Looks like I found the cause.

Here it’s stated that my OS version is not supported:

Windows 8 / Server 2012 – Support removed in MongoDB 4.4+.

Checked the same for MongoDB 4.2.13 and found that my OS is supported. Installed the ZIP version and:

>mongod --version
db version v4.2.13
git version: 82dd40f60c55dae12426c08fd7150d79a0e28e23
